My husband was taking photos of the Solar Eclipse on 10/23/14. He was taking photos through an 8inch reflector with a solar filter and a 25 millimeter plossl lens.
While sorting through his photos – the one attached stood out.
While examining the photo and comparing it to others taken at the same time, this is not a solar flare. A solar flare was actually caught on another photo. This object is much larger and closer to the earth.
The object was not visible through the camera to the naked eye.
